Nina Dobrev is desperate to cut her hair short again because it’s so low maintenance.

The Vampire Diaries star first rocked a short bob with a blunt fringe back in 2017 and has been growing out the style ever since. However, she’s now grown bored of her long brunette locks and wants to go for the chop once again.

“When I had short hair I was like ‘ugh, I miss my long hair’ and I wanted it to grow long. Now that it’s finally growing long I’m excited but I look at photos of when I had short hair and I want to cut it again,” Nina told Harper’s Bazaar, adding that she gets bored easily.

The 30-year-old actress wants an easier ‘do to manage and her shorter locks suited her low-key lifestyle.

“I did really like my short hair because it was easy. I like to be grab and go and be quick and not fuss around too much and go through a whole process. When I had short hair I could just shower and walk out and it would dry and do its own thing,” she shared. “Short hair does feel more like me.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Nina opened up about her use of social media, and confessed that while she uses filters on her photos on Instagram, she tries to offset that by posting real-life snaps and videos to prove she’s a “normal human”.

“I have good days and bad days and breakouts and don’t wear make-up all the time. It’s important that you feel beautiful and confident on your own without all that extra stuff. It’s important for me to showcase that side of me on social media as well as the glam side,” she explained.

Nina Dobrev is Dior Beauty’s latest muse.

The self-confessed beauty junkie is a huge fan of the luxe brand, and joins the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Cara Delevingne, Marion Cotillard, and Charlize Theron in serving as a brand ambassador for the French fashion house’s perfume, cosmetics, and skincare lines.

Dobrev remembers seeing Dior campaigns as she travelled around Europe with her family when she was younger and told Harper’s Bazaar magazine it was a dream come true to be working with the iconic label.

“I always looked up to Dior. It felt so timeless and classy and elegant in every way. I think the Miss Dior scent is what I always associated with that grace and timelessness. That was probably the first product I recognised, purchased, and aspired to as a little girl,” she shared.

The Vampire Diaries star has been a superfan of Dior Beauty for years, and while she tries not to wear make-up every day, her go-to products are exclusively from the French brand.

“The Forever Foundation is really great. I travel a lot and my hormones are constantly changing. I can have little breakouts,” the 30-year-old explained. “I really like it because it covers the breakouts but it doesn’t feel cakey. You feel covered but you don’t feel suffocated with make-up. It looks natural and clean and fresh and glowy and I really enjoy it.”

Rouge Dior’s Ultra Care lipstick is another firm favourite of Dobrev’s, and she uses Dior Capture Totale C.E.L.L. Energy Super Potent Serum at night after cleansing.

“The most important thing is just to wash your make-up off every night before you go to bed. Which kind of sucks sometimes,” she laughed.

Ian Somerhalder food-shamed over healthy grocery choices

Ian Somerhalder has been food-shamed for stocking up on green vegetables at a grocery store.

The Vampire Diaries actor often talks about his diet and exercise regime, and has long advocated for the benefits of abiding by a balanced eating plan.

However, Ian has now taken to Instagram to share how stunned he was when a random woman recently stopped him in a store to point out that she had “never” seen a basket so well stocked with fruit and vegetables.

“A woman just stopped me in the grocery store and told me that she had never seen a basket like mine,” he captioned a photo of his shopping cart, which appeared to be filled with lettuce, cauliflower, carrots, kale, and garlic. “I told her that I have never NOT seen this type of basket in my grocery-shopping behaviour. A few others chimed in saying that it was a very strange sight! WTF (what the f**k)? A strange sight? I’m in a grocery store. It’s food. It got me thinking and really fired up.”

In his rant, Ian explained that he hoped that he didn’t come across as “preachy”. However, the star, who welcomed a daughter named Bodhi with his actress wife Nikki Reed last year (17), wanted to make the point that people need to take responsibility for what they are eating and emphasised that it isn’t impossible to swap processed goods for fresh foods.

“I don’t mean to sound like a d**k – or preachy but this is nuts: how is it, that grown professional people in a major American city have never seen a grocery basket full of normal & healthy foods that just all happen to be green or not processed. We’re so far down the rabbit hole of packaged and “convenient” foods that our society is paying the price & so is our future. No one in our government is helping us be healthier through education. Why would they? Sick people are GREAT for business,” the 40-year-old commented.

To conclude his post, Ian noted that with a good diet and enough exercise, “everything else will start to fall into place”.

“You wouldn’t put the wrong gas in your car, so why would you put (the) wrong food in your body? We MUST take responsibility for what we put into our bodies starting now. We can do it,” he added.
